ViGlance Icon


ViGlance is a nice utility


ViGlance is a nice utility that was designed in order to bring you the beautiful effects and the enhanced functionality of Windows 7 taskbar.


Take Control of your taskbar with process grouping
ViGlance groups windows relative to their process. Each open application reserves its own space on the bar. Windows relative to that application are then grouped as children of that application on the bar. This keeps the taskbar clean and better organised into a more logical grouping system.

Enjoy true 48x48 Vista/7 icons from your taskbar
Normally Windows XP and Vista is only capable of showing 16x16 sized icons on the taskbar. Yet we tend to respond better to pictures than text. Meaning we rarely read the text labels on our taskbar. The ViGlance superbar displays full colour 48x48 icons making it quicker to identify and manage your tasks.

Replace that ugly start button with a 7 Orb Replica
The start button in Windows XP isn’t very pretty; it’s too big and ugly and its horrible shade of green. ViGlance replaces that horrible oversized start button with a small and efficient start orb. Whilst at the same time delivering a Smooth fade transitional rollover effect like that of Windows 7.

"Glide effortlessly Between tasks" - 7 Style transition effects
“Information shouldn’t just appear on the screen to the user” (MSDN). ViGlance implements a transition effect system I call “Glide”. This is based somewhat on the Aero peak feature from Windows 7. Each group is dynamically resized via the glide animation to fit the size of the available information to be presented, allowing you to “Glide” between each group on the Super Bar.
